I Suck at Bingo

Who knew that sucking at Bingo was possible?

I make the unpossible, possible; turning wacked out fantasies into reality.

Sometimes I stamp numbers that have been called.

Free Space

Oh wait, that's a free space.

Other times I stamp numbers just for the hell of it.

Not Fifty

I thought somebody said "fifty"?

If you haven't played Bingo before, you should know that a free space isn't always free. Sometimes you're not supposed to stamp those, and this photo was taken during one of those times. I can't remember if the game was B&O, Baseball, or maybe Bingo the hard way. - I just know that the free space didn't even count.

Dude, I stamped the free space when I wasn't supposed to.

How lame is that?

The game moves so fast, I can barely keep up with twelve cards.

If you haven't played Bingo before, it might be a good time to inform you that when you play on paper, with an ink dobber, each game has a different color sheet.

I left for a break, came back to my seat just in time for the next game and what do I notice? Six of my cards are green and six are black.

When tearing off my pink sheets, I inadvertently tore off an extra layer of paper and lost six black cards. Dumbass!

Now that I think of it, that's just as bad as my brother realizing he should play both sheets of his color raffle - ten minutes into game play.

  1. When we lived in Illinois, we played Bingo every Thursday night for a few months. Tom and I are extremely competitive- especially with each other, and we NEVER won.

    BUT, I loved stamping the cards. It was my favorite part! I still have my Frankenstein dauber (dobber??)!

  2. Somehow: I can't see you right there beside Rosanne when she got hooked on playing BINGO in some of her old TV episodes; but I've been accused of being wrong about things a couple of times before. By the way: did have a special cap or drawers on? Some say it helps.

  3. My dad made the best comment about those lucky nick-nacks that people like to use, "Hey Jeannette, want to get some lucky items after Bingo? We can swing by Goodwill on the way home."

    DABBER, but each to their own ;-)
